Stats- AVG/OPS, Runs, Doubles and Homeruns or Extra Base Hits, Runs Batted In, Stolen Bases, and Offensive Wins Above Replacement.
2011 NL East Right Field Rankings:
1. Mike Stanton/Marlins .262/.893, 79 R, 30 DBL, 34 HR, 87 RBI, 3.6 OWAR.
2. Carlos Beltran/Mets .289/.904, 61 R, 30 DBL, 15 HR, 66 RBI, 3.7 OWAR (with Mets).
3. Hunter Pence/Phillies .324/.954, 35 R, 25 XBH, 35 RBI, 2.2 OWAR (with Phillies).
4. Jayson Werth/Nationals .232/.717, 69 R, 26 DBL, 20 HR, 58 RBI, 19 SB, 1.6 OWAR.
5. Jason Heyward/Braves .227/.708, 50 R, 34 XHB, 42 RBI, 9 SB, 0.7 OWAR.
Notes- it's hard to find a better collective group of RF in another division in baseball. Werth and Heyward is much better players than they showed last year. Expect big bounce back years for each. Beltran is gone, but Lucas Duda is ready to take over for New York. Stanton is only 22 years old and is already a beast. He's a future 50 HR club member. An entire season of Pence will help both the Phillies offense and Pence (who had no protection in Houston).
